Reading news headlines is very interesting: “Transgender porn growing in popularity,” “Entire culture war at stake,” “Gay rainbow flag found in killer’s apartment,” “There is no God but Allah,” “Teacher sends topless selfie to student,” “Atheist demands sheriff remove ‘In God We Trust’ from patrol cars,” “Planned Parenthood selling baby parts” … Need I go on?
The above cultural statements lend a measure of credence to the credo of the evolutionists that man is the product of evolution and only the weak-minded and superstitious believe in some supra-being somewhere who created us and holds us to some standard of behavior.
However, while intellectually this may make for stimulating cocktail or mind-numbing classroom discussions, few, if any, of its proponents truly desire the world to live by this rhetoric. Even a cursory examination of the natural selection process will prove this. As in the world of predators, imagine the strongest among us literally living off of the weakest. (Hmm, it seems like Planned Parenthood might already be doing that.)
Even while these pseudo-intellectuals revel in the titillation of godlessness, they are all the while relying on the belief in God held by the masses to hold said masses in check. Understand this: Absent an internal moral force, man is controlled only by external force; man is restrained either by the strong arm of morality or the strong arm of a stronger man. Ultimately, it could be said that Western civilization is based on the Bible, others on the bullet. Even the briefest glimpse into man’s history proves this.
Cultures that practice female genital mutilation, slavery, genocide and cannibalism highlight just a few of the “noble achievements” of man in his natural state. It is utter nonsense to propose that mankind, apart from God, will exist in a so-called “civilized state” solely under the auspices of Mother Nature. Man is impelled toward a condition or state based on the beliefs or culture that influence and/or govern his actions.
While the argument for evolution may generate passionate discourse among the intelligentsia, even its strongest adherents require, and anticipate, the civilizing influence of the “Christian God they so vehemently deny.
Let us look at just a few examples:
In the wild all-natural state of African lions, when the reigning king (read “Cecil”) is deposed, the new kings must kill the offspring of the deposed king to bring the lionesses into season. Now imagine in our civilized world of humans,rather than assume the burden of supporting the offspring of the deceased (or divorced) male, the new “king” simply kills off all the old offspring and starts afresh, and like the male “kids” in a lion pride, when his reach puberty, they are driven out.
On the western plains, a younger stronger stallion challenges, then drives out, the older weaker herd leader and takes over the females. How about in our natural law evolutionary society, a 6’7″ 275-pound, 25-year-old defensive tackle sees and desires the beautiful, shapely, younger wife of the skinny, flabby 5’5″ 150-pound college professor who taught him evolution. Solution? Beat him up (maybe bad enough that he goes away to die), move in, and take over his wife and house.
A seagull sees another gull fly by with a freshly caught fish, so he chases it down, makes it drop the fish, and takes it home to his family. How about this in today’s “no-God-allowed” society – an unemployed man trying unsuccessfully to get a loan in a bank watches a business executive walk out with $25,000, so he follows him, bashes in his head and takes the money to feed his own family.
A tribe of apes attacks and drives the hitherto dominant tribe out of their abundant feeding grounds and takes over. So why, in our “freedom-from-religion” society, shouldn’t gangs of blacks and Hispanics join forces and with guns drive the whites out of the nicer neighborhoods and take them over or vice versa?
Finally, a polar bear that hasn’t eaten lately kills and eats a baby polar bear, so – in New York City, a homeless guy who hasn’t eaten for weeks, snatches a baby out of a carriage while the mother isn’t looking, runs down an alley into an abandoned building, builds a fire, cooks and eats the kid. I can just hear the genteel folk in their security-guard-protected enclaves: “That is barbaric!”
The intellectuals who contend vociferously against God and His morality and passionately for evolution, wail, “Such behavior among humans is uncivilized … wrong … immoral!” They apparently have forgotten that according to them, a human is only a higher form of animal, so why should we expect different behavior from these particular animals?
Evolutionists would also claim that many of the acts of previous civilizations – like feeding babies to crocodiles, sacrificing virgins and throwing humans into volcanoes to appease the gods – were uncivilized. And by the way, I would give you odds they are using Western Judeo-Christian civilization as the standard.
If we truly are the product of evolution, then there are no moral absolutes, as there is no Author of moral absolutes.
If evolution is the truth, we should all act in a manner consistent with our own view of self, whatever that may be. Doesn’t that line up with the position of the “enlightened”?
Do whatever you want, as long as you do it in a civilized fashion when interacting with us elite animals.
